The Acme Big Band Makes Musical Statements with Great Repertoire and Great Arrangements

PLAY | 08:00

Behind the scenes of the Acme Jazz Company are the thoughtful big band arrangements of artistic director Bob Parsons. Bob has his own arranging style, and he is conversant in many of the other big band arrangers. Plus, as a player himself, Bob also listens to the ideas Acme Jazz company musicians might have. Bob got together with Phil Nusbaum to talk about arranging.
